On my 73 02 I have a big brake conversion, the

rotors are not vented and I think the brakes came

off a 320i. I bought the car with it wearing 13" steel

wheels from 74-76 02's. I put on some 14

bottlecaps and it runs fine - now with 13" alloys it

looks like there is a clearance problem between

the caliper and the inner rim of the alloy. Has

anyone grinded the calipers for alloys to fit ? any

suggestions are most appreicated - Thanks David

Just be sure not to grind too far into the caliper or you're screwed. Go slow, you can always take more off.
